News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 27): The Steelers pass offense was running so hot that Miller posted his first real elite fantasy score of the year. While that level won't keep up, you still have some faith in Miller as at least a bench option for the second half of the season.

General News (Tue Oct 28): posted seven receptions for 112 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Indianapolis Colts. Miller joins former Steelers John Stallworth and Hines Ward as the only players in team history with 500 receptions.

Week 9: vs Baltimore Ravens

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. WOW! Ben Roethlisberger is nuclear hot entering the second half of the season, having thrown for an incredible 40/49 for 522 yards passing, six TDs and zero interceptions (with zero sacks taken) against the Colts last Sunday. As usual, Antonio Brown led all receivers with 13 targets for 10/133/2 receiving vs. Indianapolis, followed by old stalwart Heath Miller (eight for 7/112/1). Youngsters Martavis Bryant (seven for 5/83/2) and Markus Wheaton (five for 5/56/1) also caught TD passes, while Le'Veon Bell snagged 6/56/0 on seven tries. It is all GREAT for the Steelers entering this key AFC North showdown. Last time Roethlisberger and company saw Baltimore (Week 2) the passing game was struggling (22/37 for 217 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception), but that is not true as of Week 9. This is a new game, friends. The Ravens' pass D coughed up 21/28 for 239 net yards passing, zero TDs and one interception to Andy Dalton last week (two sacks taken for -27 yards), after holding Matt Ryan and company to 29/44 for 186 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions (with five sacks taken for -42 yards behind their injury-ravaged offensive line). So far this season, Baltimore is ranked 22nd in the NFL averaging 256.0 net passing yards allowed per game,with seven passing scores given out vs. five interceptions (tied for 20th in the NFL) and seventeen sacks (16th) generated to date. The Steelers have given out 20 sacks this season (tied for 23rd in the NFL) - Roethlisberger is likely to have some pass rushers in his face this weekend. If Roethlisberger can avoid taking a lot of sacks, he should have a good game against the sub-par Ravens' secondary.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs CLE (4 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)

Heath Miller was not a major player in the Steelers' passing attack, garnering only 4 targets in a game where the Steelers played from behind for the entire game. His targets were exclusively short crossing patterns that yielded minor gains in situations where short yardage was necessary. For fantasy purposes, Miller is only a bye-week filler until his role in this offense is increased.

2014 Week 7 vs HOU (1 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)

Despite playing over 90% of the Steelers' offensive snaps, Miller was only targeted twice all game (one target was negated due to a defensive holding penalty). His lone statistical contribution was a short reception for 13 yards in the 2nd quarter.

2014 Week 8 vs IND (8 / 7 / 112 / 1 rec)

Heath Miller had a tremendous day against the Colts' secondary. With Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton distracting linebackers away from the middle of the field, Miller got plenty of targets (8) in a game where Ben Roethlisberger threw nearly 50 passes. Miller caught a 49-yard pass in the 3rd quarter when Wheaton drew double-coverage, leaving Miller wide-open and able to gain 40 yards after the catch; he was tackled just prior to reaching the endzone at the 4-yard line. Miller pulled in his 2nd touchdown of the season, and Roethlisberger's 6th of the day, on play action when Miller pretended to block before releasing to catch an 11-yard pass, uncontested
